Taranaki Alpine Cliff Rescue (Inc)

Welcome to the Taranaki Alpine Cliff Rescue homepage

Taranaki Alpine Cliff Rescue ( Inc) is a non-profit organisation which provides a specialist service to Police SAR. Our small group of trained personel carry out alpine and cliff rescues - the scope of which is beyond normal Police search and rescue work.

We are usually called out whenever a rescue involves:

  • Mt Egmont/Taranaki ( generally only above the bushline/snowline areas)
  • Ropework
  • Cliffs
  • Helicopters in difficult terrain
Securing the wreckage of crashed aircraft near summit - Dec 2004

We hope that you will never require our servces, but if ever the need arises, you can take heart knowing that skilled aid will be on its way!
